CONTEST: Zany baseball promotions

Jason Gregor

I have always marveled at minor league baseball and the unique, zany, outlandish and absolute genius game promotions they dream up. And I want you guys to dream up some zany promotions as well, but we'll get to that further down the post.

Some of my favourite ridiculous promotions include (note, those promotions in blockquotes are taken from this Sports Illustrated article):

Silent night

The Charleston Riverdogs went a record against the Capital City Bombers when they tried to play the quietest game ever. For the first five innings, there was no talking. Fans wore duct tape over their mouths and held placards that read "YEAH!," "BOO!" and "HEY BEER MAN!" Also, ushers were replaced by librarians and golf marshals held up "Quiet Please" signs.

I’m not sure they would allow this at Rexall since they often confiscate placards at the door. I still can’t believe how anal they were when the Human Rake returned for the first time as a member of the Ducks. I loved the girls who dressed up pregnant with “Are you my Daddy” on them.

Awful night

Attempting to produce the worst atmosphere ever at a baseball game, the Altoona Curve had music by William Shatner and Milli Vanilli, a gate giveaway of a 12-inch square of bubble wrap, pregame autograph sessions with non-celebrities, batting averages listed as "failed averages" (a .300 hitter had a .700 average) and a special presentation to the 1962 Mets -- baseball's worst team ever.

Anytime you can incorporate one of the biggest musical frauds in history it’s a good idea. Can you imagine how excited Bingofuel would be if they asked him to sign autographs?

Ted Williams popsicle night

When Williams' body was cryogenically frozen, the Bisbee-Douglas Copper Kings gave popsicles to the first 500 fans.

Not that unique, but how cool would it have been if they made the popsicles in a likeness of Williams!

Pre-planned Funeral Night

The Hagerstown Suns gave away a full pre-paid funeral valued at $6,500 to one (un)lucky fan. The package included embalming, a casket and funeral home use, as well as a death certificate. Two-thousand fans entered the contest.

This is still one of my favs. I had the PR guy from Hagerstown on my show to talk about it. The funniest part was that it was non-transferable. They didn’t want young kids giving it to their grandparents. A direct quote from the PR guy. Could you imagine your grandma’s face when she unwraps her Xmas present and it is a certificate for her pre-planned funeral. Nothing says love like that.

Salute To Indoor Plumbing Night

The West Virginia Power planned to close all the rest rooms and make everyone use portable toilets, when the Augusta Greenjackets came to town, but there were health code concerns. But they still made the best of it. With the team’s employees dressed in overalls, they mashed up brownes and made them look like “poo,” and then they had a “Poo Toss.”

Honestly who thinks of this? And how many fans want to partake in a Poo Toss? I’m guessing the editor of the Charleston Gazette was praying the home team lost just for the headline possibilities…Power Lay A Log…or…What A Shitty Game… feel free to come up with your own.

Well it isn’t just baseball that can come up with unique promotions. The Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL have come up with a pretty good one of their own. “DON’T BE LIKE MIKE NIGHT” in honour of bong lover Micheal Phelps.

Here is the release from the Admirals, or you can check out their website:

All fans who are graduates of a DARE program (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) can get into the game for just $2 by bringing their DARE graduation certificate to the Admirals’ office or the Bradley Center box office. In addition, anyone with the name Michael, Phelps, Mary Jane, Cheech, Chong, Weed (Wied) or anyone who has won an Olympic Gold Medal can also get their ticket for only $2. “I, along with Nancy Reagan, want to encourage people to not do drugs,” said Admirals President Jon Greenberg. “As an organization the Milwaukee Admirals don’t condone or encourage the use of illegal drugs, including, but not limited to marijuana, or anabolic steroids for that matter.” The Ads will also be giving away a weed wacker, that will be signed by the team and if the Admirals score with 4:20 left on the clock in any period one lucky fan will win a season ticket for the 2009-10 season. The number 420 is often known as the police code for illegal drug use. Plus, to ensure that no one ends up in the same predicament as Michael Phelps, the team will provide a document shredder at the DigiCopy Information Table outside section 225 so fans can bring any embarrassing or incriminating photos to be destroyed.

Does anyone know someone named Cheech or Chong, because if you do their parents must have loved the hippie whiskey. I can just picture Wanye and BMJS hovering outside section 225 hoping to get a glimpse of some incriminating photos, or stealing them and sprinting out of the building like they had just pulled off the greatest coup in history. Of course, they would get tripped up by an usher in section 227 and then having to spend the night having a “Poo Toss/Plug” of their own at the crowbar hotel.

In honour of great promotions, whoever comes up with a funny, and possible promotion that the Oil Cats could do this summer, will get a pair of tickets to next Saturday’s Oiler/Flames game, courtesy of yours truly. This is my Valentines gift to the Nation.

The winner will be decided by the promotion girls from the BEAR. And if it’s that good I will forward to the Oilers PR staff, with a guarantee that if they use it, the winner will be showered with gifts for that game.

V-Day? More like D-Day

Speaking of Valentines Day, is there a more stressful holiday for guys? This day is all about the lady in your life. As guys, if our women cooks a nice meal wearing a teddy, lets us watch sports all night and then has a spirited roll in the sheets we are pumped.

Meanwhile most women expect us to be some Casanova for a day. It’s great getting your pocket picked at the flower and chocolate counter, while sweating bullets wondering if lillies, roses or tulips are her favourite. She’s told us many times, but as usual we weren’t paying attention.

For any of you newbies who are experiencing your first Valentines with a new women, don’t fall for their, “You don’t have to get me anything,” or “Don’t go overboard.” Those are warning shots.

Be prepared to do your best Slick Rick or Lance Romance impression. Women don’t want to hear from their friends about how sweet their boyfriend/husband was while you thought getting her a teddy bear from 7-Eleven while you cashed in your sports select ticket was the good enough.

While most of us don’t want to cave to the pressure, we ultimately do because the consequences are too much. Getting cut off is not an option, and neither is spending the next month trying to make up for it. I suggest getting her tipsy while watching the Oilers/Kings game and hope it goes well from there.

Good luck, fellow gents.

And to Amber and the other female readers, if there are any: enjoy your day, because March 14th is when you better return the favour.

I am launching a V-day protest. Although valentines day is probably the easiest day of the year to pick up random, lonely, drunk, bitter, LONELY, vindictive and did I say lonely, girls......, I refuse to fall into the "loving" spirit. So in the spirit od protest, I WILL go to the bar and pick up one of these fine such specimens from the opposite sex and NOT sleep with them until Sunday. It's sort of like a hunger strike, in thre fact that neither one of us will be eating anything at the time, but looking at the big picture here, 1. Valentines day wil be over, and secondly breakfast will be great. And you find out if she still loves you in the morning.

I've already sent in my Official entry, but how about an "Armchair Coach for the Night Promotion"? People could send in a rant saying how bad of a coach Mac T is, and whoever writes the best one can coach the team for a night to demostrate to everyone how brilliant they are and how easy it is to coach a professional hockey team. All the Mac T haters could prove to everyone how terrible Mac T is by coaching the team to victory. The Oilers would obviously win 812-0, and the winner would instantly become an Oiler legend....Or they would realize how tough of a job it is, crap their pants and run off the bench trembling and crying like a Baby. Either way, it would be great entertainment.

Elvis Night!!!!! I'm sure it has been done before but man wouldn't that be cool, thousands of elvis's in a myriad of white jumpsuits, leather and whiteshirt/jeans . Not to mention the loads of side burns and his 'vegas' sunglasses.

Have all the music that night from him vast repetoire too.

Each time the Oilers score we could play "I feel so bad"...or "All shook up" and if we win, "Promised Land" and if we lose, "Don't Cry Daddy" or "Heartbeak Hotel".

For a penalty the song "Jail house rock" (obviously) and if there is fight we could play "Viva las vegas" (in tribute to all the fights staged in las vegas). The possiblities are endless.

Here's an idea for a contest, albeit a bit lame:

Historic ticket stub night - if you bring in a ticket stubs from a previous season for the exact same day as this year's game day, you get a free Oilers jersey.

My personal favorite would be a jersey trade in night. I have in my possession a 'M COMRIE' (from the days of Paul), an away Torres & a home Stoll sweater.

How many people have jersey's like that. They are like $200 & I have seen a guy in Carolina game 7 of the cup finals with an old 'Marchant' with the name covered up in hockey tape with 'Winchester' written on it instead.

Plus everyone has the old sweater - good way to get them into the 'edge' sweater...

You guys are missing the boat, Gregor clearly said it was a promotion for the "Oil Cats". I can see the confusion though, NHL team or minor minor league baseball team.

But the armchair coach thing would work for whoever the coach is of the baseball team. ON could even start up a F(last initial here)NF campaign in the months leading up just to create some emotion.

Actually that is my idea - a "F(blank)NF" night where fans bring in posters to exhorting anyone and everyone to be fired. Most creative posters win the opportunity to fire someone.

Well if we are talking a theme night for the Oilcats! Then id have to go with a cat themed nights. People can come dressed up as the feline of thier choice. Maybe even a set of whiskers can be handed out at the door. This would be great for adults, kids and just in general a family approach. To top it off the fans arent allowed to holler, scream or make and "human" responses to the play on the field. All that can be done is cat like noises. Hisssssss...if the oposition catches a fly ball. Raaaaorrr! Like a cougar noise if we hit a homer, double, throw a strike out. Prrrrrrring....when a batter strolls up to the plate (that might work better for the ladies) Best costume gets to go behind the scenes and meet the team. A draw at the ball park for one lucky cat owner to win kitty litter or cat food for a year). Basically anything that relates to cats can be incorporated into the night but the noises from the fans and the outfits would be classic. I can definitly see families embracing this idea!

Some sort of "Private Eyes" - theme night might work. Anyone dressing up like a stereotypical private eye (fedora, suit, etc.) gets entered into a drawing to, I dunno, participate in some scavenger hunt in Rexall during a practice day to find clues to a prize (autographed jersey, whatever).

Law school has removed my creativity *clap clap*.

Also, in Japan, the Valentine's Day thing is backwards. On Valentine's Day, girls give guys chocolate, and on March 14, guys return the favour with usually a bigger, better gift. More useless knowledge for the masses!

I say you try and break some kind of obscure world record. Get the guiness book and look up the mass participation section and see what you could promote from there. I.e. Most people ever to bellydance at once is only 538 according to the guiness website. As if we couldn't top that. Plus imagine the hula skirts and coconut tops.....most people simultanously eating an apple pie.....etc etc. I think it make for a killer promo. Bet bet is to get the book, see whats beatable, then give'r.

Make your own bat contest.....people make their own bats and bring them to the game. Before the game begins you get the BEAR girls or whoever to judge them on length, girth, integrity etc (you can play up that innuendo as much as possible). Three are selected, then those three get a chance to win something by seeing, on the field, how far they can hit a ball/puck, during the 7th inning stretch with their "crazy" bat.

Or you could just hold a raffle and see how far three selectees can hit a ball with a hockey stick. Prizes ensue.

call it "show us your wood"

Man, do I feel stoopid. Oil cats, thanks Tommy. Hey, Elvis Night could still be done. The best Elvis costums could be paraded at the 7th inning streatch and the fans cheer for their favourite. The winner gets to sing the song "take me out to the ball game...like Elvis". All the ushers/vendors could dress up too. Maybe even bring in a real Evis impersonator to do some pre-game/-post-game songs on a stage somewhere on the grounds.

Glad to see I wasn't the only one who can't read...I like the cat idea.

Better than what might happen for the Vipers in Calgary, not too many people like snakes, especially posionous ones...Imagine winning a year's supply of snake food - a couple hundred live mice or rats! haha

Failed Edmonton Franchise night

Personally I think minor, minor, minor league baseball games held during workdays in Edmonton has little chance of long term prosperity.

To this effect I would encourage all of the folks who have been tricked/given/bought any other failed/defunct Edmonton sports franchise memorabilia to bring it to the game.

Basketball: Skyhawks Baseball: Trappers, Cracker Cats Soccer: Drillers Hockey: Edmonton Ice

I personally know a guy who still has a hilarious Skyhawks jersey and has been known to wear it from time to time.

Are we talking about minor league baseball on a hockey website?

If its an Oilers promotion your looking for, how about this:

A dunk tank full of 10 w 30 and MacT on the seat. Fans pay 20$ a ball and we use the proceeds to bribe a good head coach into giving us some tips?

Just a thought

This is a simple promotion and it will go like this. Since they are now called the Oil Cats the best way to get asses in the seats will go as such. Get a whole pride of the diesel ultra lounge faithful liquored up, dressed in kitty suits, and have them wrestle in oil as Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard blares over the PA.

Fans will scream in adoration and cheer on their favorite kitten as they scream "Scratch, lick and claw that pussy!" Children will shed tears of joy, local patrons will rise up in triumph and the grand stands of Telus field will be filled once again.

This is for when the Victoria Seals come to town, you could give away to the first 500 or 1000 depending on the cost of course, a nurf or stuff toy like bat. It could also say on it something like "official Oil Cats Seal Club". Ya, cheesey but effective. Maybe it's been done, I don't know?

"Prostate Exam Night" A free ticket and a bottle of KY Jelly to anyone willing to get a full rectal exam at some point during the game. Put up live video of the taunt facial expressions made during the ungodly procedures on the big screen between innings/periods.

Play some good ass shaking music the entire night. "There's a bad moon on the rise", and so forth.

Damn, a Tribute to Owner night (with everyone dressing as Batman) was my idea too!!

But then I thought if it was a *real* tribute to the owner night, no one would show up, since the guy's invisible in this town anyways, and then so should the stands be.

@ Jason Gregor: Yes, dead serious. Valentine's Day - Feb. 14, White Day - Mar. 14.

Kinda dropped the ball on V-Day this year, so I'm telling her I'm getting her a small V-Day gift, but the real deal will come on White Day.

Sadly, I've never heard of steak and BJ Day 'till HoGo mentioned it. Seems like I've been missing out.

Female reader here.The only thing my guy and I are doing tomorrow is watching the game and hanging around, we both think Valentines day is LAME. I've already told him not to get anything, and I'm not expecting anything.

As for March 14th, well, that's my mom's birthday, which will likely trump anything else hahahahahaha.

Well guys here's a bit of Valentine's advice from a woman's perspective. DON'T EVER hire a Barbershop Quartet and have them serenade the "woman of your dreams" at the office with the song "O, how I love thee! How I dote on thee!" by Shakespeare. I just had this happen to me today . . . and it was absolutely awful!!! And to top it all off, they gave me a rose, a card, and wanted to take my picture, I was so horrified that I scurried back into my office before they could snap a shot!
